Grad transfer Brison Gresham transfers to Texas Southern
POSTED: July 14, 2021 -- 4:47 p.m. CT
Johnny Jones, Texas Southern University men's basketball head coach, announced that former University of Houston big man Brison Gresham will join the Tigers' men's basketball program for the 2021-22 season.
"We're excited about the addition of Brison to our program," said Jones. "He's going to bring a much-needed presence to our team in the paint on both ends of the court. He has the athletic ability to guard on the perimeter and his ability to block shots on the inside and rebound will be something we'll certainty welcome. This will really help to create an opportunity for us to address the concern we had last year with the lack of depth inside. This certainly will answer those questions."
Brison graduated from the University of Houston in May. He's utilizing the extra year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NCAA offered student-athletes to continue his collegiate education and basketball career.
